Pregnant after 35

Tell me a happy IUI story, please....

I'm actually part of the TTC after 35 board (I'm 42).  On Monday we're having our first IUI after lots of failed attempts with follistim/ovidrel, & TI.  So many of the TTC after 35 women have been unsuccessful with IUI so I thought I'd check in here to raise my hopes a little.

Thanks!

Me: 42, DH: 43. We are so grateful to have a 2yr old daughter, conceived naturally after 3 miscarriages & no treatments (our Dr. gave us 1 more month to try on our own before advacing to IVF, & we conceived her naturally in January 2010)! Trying since April 2011 without sucess....MD said we were both "fine" & that if it wasn't happening, it was a chromosomal issue. Finally started Follistim 225mcg injections with an Ovidrel trigger November 2012. Bleeding 11 days post Ovidrel on November 25th. Starting the whole lab/Ultrasound/Follistim cycle again on November 27th...

  • I did get a bfp on my first IUI with Gonal F, unfortunately it was a chemical pregnancy but I still consider that a success in terms of the actual process of the IUI working. One key thing my RE pointed out was that in terms of having better odds with IUI

  • I was diagnosed with PCOS and did two cycles of clomid with no luck.  On my 3rd cycle of clomid and first IUI attempt, I was very fortunate and got pregnant.  Good luck!!

  • Thank you so much for all the responses. It really is so helpful to hear real stories, especially when things didn't go well for our first IUI due to DH!  We'll see if we're successful with the TI this month, & if not, I think it's going to
